Suuri Seikkailu ja elämä nyt!

Hyppäsimme käsi kädessä! Olemme saanet aitoutta, pysähtymistä, heräämistä, hetkeä. Nyt elämme hirsiä ja pellavarivettä, banaanilaatikoita, teinejä ja taaperoa, koiranneniä ja lampaita, kaartelevia merikotkia ja huikaisevaa halua merelle.




The Quiz

When the ice surrounds us and the tourist haven't found this winter paradise of ours the locals seek company and warmth from each other... And our New Year's promise included a sporty way of life, so we combined these two needs and visited Frågesport, a  question-sport - QUIZ - at the Hjalmars! If only people knew how good it does to your shape and your mind it would be much harder for us to win...
Hjalmars is situated in the middle of our island Korppoo in the house of the most famous smuggler Jalmari Mäkelä from the Prohibition time.
Every other Friday at 20.00 it is bingo or the quiz!
We always start with the pizza and round it with the warm chocolate cake of hostess Minna.
Sea Jazz and Hopp-i-Land-Kalle!

Some even bring their own paper and pens - we have a working order, he is responsible for the sport and car news and I am for the rest!
The Lady Fortuna was on our side, this time there were only few of  those two and even if we didn't recognize the stage entering music of Elvis we did know what a clipper was, so...
...The winner was Rumar Runaways! With 14 points of 30 and free pizzas next time!
Thanks, Tage, it was a nice evening, once again! And not too many of those sport questions...
There are many legends about Jalmari - he was keen on cycling and built an own velodrome by the house. With his twin brother Ilmari he is said to have taken part in a competition, too. Ilmari had started the route Turku-Salo and halfways they had switched and Jalmari had cycled the rest with new strengths and won!
Jalmari was never caught for smuggling but during the war for listening the radio without permission...
